Weekly summary alert- edited list items SP 2013

    Question

  • Hi all,

    I've been banging my head against the wall with this one for a while now. My problem is the formatting of a weekly summary alert for edited items on a sharepoint 2013 list.

    I have a view called 'For me' which lists all the items I am the manager off. I want to get a weekly summary of all the items that appear in 'For me' view and have been modified within a week. It is working fine but it lists items in a chronological order- not in 'per item' order, e.g.:

    Item 1                                     Modified                       Modified By

                                                                    15/02/15                              User 1

    Title       John                     

    Value    500

    Item 2                                     Modified                       Modified By

                                                                    14/02/15                              User 2

    Title       Peter                    

    Value    350

    Item 1                                     Modified                       Modified By

                                                                    17/02/15                              User 2

    Title       John Kevin                         

    Value    500 400

    City        Chicago

    And I want:

    Item 1                                    

    Modified                       Modified By

                                                                    15/02/15                              User 1

    Title       John                     

    Value    500

    Modified                       Modified By

                                                                    17/02/15                              User 2

    Title       John Kevin                         

    Value    500 400

    City        Chicago

    Item 2                                     Modified                       Modified By

                                                                    14/02/15                              User 2

    Title       Peter                    

    Value    350

    Is there any simple way or a nice workaround to achieving this?

  • Did you try to group the view by item?

    Cheers,

  • What do you mean, group the view by item? We are talking Weekly Summary Alert which is an e-mail sent by SharePoint to the users that have been subscribed to the alerts. We are not talking about displaying items in a view.

    It is probably to do with modifying an alert templates in SharePoint hive folder but I do not know how to change the formatting so edited items in an alert e-mail body will be displayed 'per item' rather than 'per modification date'.
